I'm a mom — The Bump
Adoption

I'm a mom

So from application to birth was 2 weeks. We were matched the day after we applied to an agency, and our son was suppose to come July 22nd, but he decided he couldn't wait and arrived on June 24th. After 1.5weeks in Utah we are home. I cannot believe how everything fell into place for us. After everything we've been through, I cannot imagine a more beautiful baby. He was worth everything!

Next up, post placement visits and finalization in our state.

  • congrats!! I would say after your losses you deserve nothing but the easiest of placements!
    Married on 3.20.2004. It took 30 month, 2 failed adoptions and IVF for our first miracle. We have had 9 foster kids since he was born and started the domestic adoption process when he was 10 month old, we had 4 failed matches in that time. After our daughter was born we brought her home and spent 2 weeks fearing we might lose her because of complications that came up. But Praise God all went through and she is ours forever!

  • Congratulations!
  • Congratulations!  He's adorable!

    We also adopted in Utah (we live here) and had a crazy short wait, too.  It's quite a trip to go from application to baby in a few weeks.  I wonder if we used the same agency...

  • Thank you everyone. We're adjusting to life at home and I still can't believe it's real sometimes.

    We used A Guardian Angel, and they are wonderful, simply amazing. I cannot say enough good things about them. Myles' birthmother is one amazing woman as well. I can't wait to tell him all about her.

  • We used the same agency and we were 2 weeks from application to delivery room too! 
  • That's the agency we used.  They were great to work with.  The only complaint we had was that a lot of it felt rushed, but that's not really a complaint in adoption!
